[MREL] Ultra Low-Poly Iron Sight Garand (Must see!)

08-25-2003, 07:17 AM
Here's a half-assed version of a 20 poly garand. Must see! (No screenshots, but it's only 30 or so KB, for Chrissakes...)

Buggy: Hell yes!

Be sure to backup your old models. I'm not joking.

Yes, I am aware it is missing the last half of the animations; I decided that a model of this nature shouldn't be worth too much of my time...

really great work!

08-25-2003, 07:24 AM
LMAO well it's very cerative if nothing else.....:)

08-25-2003, 07:31 AM
lol..did you mean to do this..or where you trying something else that went badly wrong?:D

it's certainly very...um..very interesting..yeah, interesting;)

Hahaha, it was really just a joke and a test to see if I could remake 2.0's "iron-sight" crosshairs, but due to sloppy origining, they didn't come out exactly right. That's when I decided it would take too long to origin them, so I just played around and saw what kind of stupid things I could do with this. I was gonna change the butt smack to a punch and have a big Namco style "Reload!" for an empty idle animation, but then I got bored of it and just compiled... Oh well, at least it's something new, eh?

i really think this could work for Low-end users. and if sorta creates a feeling like in XIII. kinda cell shading w/o the ... cell shading :p .

2D weapons and player models in a 3d world would be a great idea actually.

08-25-2003, 05:28 PM

Needs P models. Just do a rectangular prism.

08-25-2003, 07:23 PM

08-28-2003, 10:31 PM

08-29-2003, 01:04 AM
Eh, no, I never intended this to be much more than a big joke, i don't see me doing a pack anytime soon, but anyone else is free to try...

You know it was all your porn films that clogged up your PC, not my models :D lol


08-29-2003, 02:19 PM
how did u do the iron sight thingy its kewl whish u could incorporate that in a kooler model cuse the clip of ammo in the air is destracting for me lol

08-29-2003, 03:00 PM
Parts of the model that are closer to the model (the | part fo the sight) sway more than the further parts of the model (the |_ _| part) so putting the | up close and the |_ _| far back makes it have the right effect. Origining might be a problem with real models though.

08-29-2003, 03:45 PM

Make a pack of these!!!!

Can also make the p & w weapon models with this technique??

For people with problems with fps would be really REALLY Great!

Please :rolleyes:

You know, this could be incorporated in to regular 3D models [except MG's and snipers, obviously, since it doesn't even matter anymore]. At least the crosshair, anyway. Like was mentioned, have the center piece further than the surrounding bits and it'll sway nicely while you move, as if it were the difference between the front and rear sights on an actual gun. Assign it to the main bone of the gun's body and it'll realistically go off-screen when you're reloading and such. Can you get more realistic without having the whole gun in the way? Too bad snipers don't have a scoping animation. The actual scope could be brought in to center and used to snipe.

Trp. Jed's HLMV hack could be used to powerful effect here.

please explain on how i could get the iron sighted cross in a regular rifle :D it looks kool

08-30-2003, 06:28 PM

Heh, Whats with the Mid air clip?

09-11-2003, 09:25 PM
Dude! not only did you fix the problem of not being able to have a 3.1 style crosshair, but you help so many people out with crappy computers! I tried it out a few minutes ago. Now I get the same FPS (while using the garand) with drawviewmodel on as I do with it off!

Fix the little floating garand clip, and would you PLEASE release a pack of these? Everyone that I've shown this in 63rd think they're badass. You really really should try and release a pack - who cares if it was just for fun.

P.S. Sorry I would've posted this sooner but the broken forums wouldn't let me. I hope you're still around.

09-11-2003, 11:40 PM
Hahaha, you guys! The "midair clip bug" was INTENTIONAL it was supposed to look like a Virtua Cop/Time Crisis style Ammo Count (that's why the shells fly out of it and junk, haha)

As for a pack, I think I've been nagged enough times to show it might be worth my effort, so keep your eyes peeled.
